Hard Drive Died

Update:
I received my MacBook Pro back in 3 days. The service I received from Apple was amazing. I shipped it on 3/22/07, it was fixed and shipped back to me on 3/23/07, it was delived via DHL on Saturday 3/24/07 at 9:00am PST. I would recommend the AppleCare Protection Plan for this quality service alone.
